Stereo and Car Mounting Devices

We have found a couple smartphone suction mount devices that fit the Pono Player perfectly.  Use these to mount the Pono to a car windshield or to a glass sheet on your stereo rack.  Make sure to mount on glass, not wood as they will not hold very long on a porous surface. 

The LONG version (above) has a shaft which is about 4 inches long and is adjustable/ bendable, although it is extremely rigid and holds its shape very well.  You can get the Pono mounted at any angle as there is also ball joint at the 'head' which can spin to almost any orientation and locks in place.  Four soft rubber 'claw' type grips in the head hold on to the Pono securely. 

 

The SHORT version has a fixed, short shaft that does not bend.  It has a ball joint in the 'head' to pivot the player at any angle.
